Wonderful Swap Goodies

 I participated in Amy "Bumble Bee Lane"    Christmas Gingerbread swap.

I felt like a little girl on Christmas morning opening my wonderful box of goodies from

Amy.  Amy certainly spoiled me. I should have posted sooner but my daughter

is type 1 diabetic and was in CCU this week with diabetic ketoasidosis, a very serious condition.

She got home today and is still very weak. I am so thankful that the Lord spared her life.

I am emotionally drained but so happy and so thankful that Stephanie is home!!!!

   I want to show you the wonderful goodies that Amy sent me, and she had everything wrapped

so beautifully.  I didn't know that Amy could sew, she made the wonderful bunny, the Santa ornie,

and the gingerbread man. She does awesome work. She also made the gingerbread bowl filler

ornies.  When I was looking at my treasures I saw where she had gotten me a penny rug purse,

that was designed by Karen "My Colonial Home"  . It is beautiful.!!! Karen makes such beautiful penny

rugs and designs penny rug patterns.  



soap, it smells so yummy!!! Bunny, and ginger ornies Amy made. The penny rug purse designed by Karen.
Thank you soooo much Amy, you sure spoiled me, I love everything!!!!Thank you for hosting such a wonderful swap!!! If you don't know Amy stop by her blog it is wonderful!!!! Amy is a lovely person,blogger friends are the best!!!

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
